Arsenal ace William Saliba sends warning to Manchester United ahead of Premier League clash

Mikel Arteta&aposs side sit at the top of the Premier League table with an eight-point lead over Manchester City in second. Arsenal, who secured a 2-0 victory over Tottenham in the North London derby at the weekend, have a nine-point advantage over Erik ten Hag&aposs men.

United have won their last nine matches in all competitions and are the only team to have beaten the Gunners in the Premier League so far this season. The Reds won 3-1 against Arsenal at Old Trafford in September, with Antony and Marcus Rashford (two) on the scoresheet for the home side.

Providing they beat Crystal Palace on Wednesday, Ten Hag&aposs side can take a huge step forward in their title push with a win over Arsenal on Sunday, but Gunners defender Saliba has insisted that he is relishing the chance to get revenge over the Reds.

“It is better when you have the pressure at the top than down. It is better like this,” he told talkSPORT. “We dont have to have pressure, we have a big game next week.

“They are the only team to beat us in the Premier League and we want to beat them again at home. We will prepare for this game very good and we will win in front of our fans.”

While United will be hoping to take the title race right to the wire this term, former defender Gary Neville does not believe the Reds – or the Gunners will win the league title this season.
